War and Kiez: is everything else irrelevant in Berlin now? – Berlin

“And yet the other lesson of the world wars must not be forgotten: peace is precious, and with it its climate of gender stars and snowflakes,” writes historian Hedwig Richter in an article in “Zeit” , in which he is also responsible for defending democracy. “If we forget about this world of peace, if we call his speeches decadent, Putin, the enemy of freedom, would have won in many ways.”

I was glad to read that, because I am not sure what else is worth reporting and commenting on in times of war, especially in the local area, in the Berlinisch Kiezigen, which we represent with our newsletters from the twelve districts of Berlin.

On the one hand, of course, we report on aid to Ukraine and refugees (for example, here in the Marzahn-Hellersdorf newsletter). On the other hand, what are currently supposedly minor issues are still important to us.

Especially since there are connections. For example in mobility, specifically on our roads. Here, politics at all levels, but also our daily behavior, can contribute to making Russian energy supplies, which finance Putin’s war, expendable.

“Fight Putin, ride a bike,” the saying came from a cyclist in England and became a social media meme. It sounds a bit far-fetched, but it’s ultimately true.

Here are a few more topics that you will find in the current Marzahn-Hellersdorf newsletter from Tagesspiegel:

The Tagesspiegel newsletter, which you can order free of charge here, recently celebrated its fifth anniversary and is available to all twelve districts of Berlin with some 262,000 subscriptions. In it we inform you once a week in a grouped and compact way about what happens in your district. We also often let readers have their say in newsletters, after all, no one knows Berlin’s neighborhoods as well as the people who live there.
